  1. A Spray Nozzle with Electrically Controllable Spray Characteristics

    SBC: Fluid Jet Associates            Topic: N/A

    In the conduction of benchmark combustion experiments, a fuel spray nozzle that produces a steady-well-defined spray is needed. This fuel spray, of known properties, is a boundary condition for the atomization, mixing, and combustion which results throughout the combustor volume. Present spray nozzles use fluid turbulence, which is chaotic, to drive the spray formation. Because the turbulence ampl ...

  2. XRD Integral Method Determination of the Triaxial Residual Stress Field

    SBC: Lambda Research            Topic: N/A

    Finish machining of structural ceramics can produce residual stresses, and subsurface defects (SSD) acting as stress concentrators, in the near-surface material. Residual stresses and SSD produced by machining affect the mechanical properties of ceramic components. In this context, it is essential that the residual stresses be properly quantified in ceramics, in order to establish suitable machini ...

  3. A Step/Corba Framework for Integrating Manufacturing Specifications with

    SBC: RENAISSANCE SERVICES            Topic: N/A

    While much of the data involved in product and order definition has been captured in standard electronic structures such as IGES and EDI, material and process specifications are still handled as amorphous, paper-based documents. The use of manual, text-based specifications is an extremely labor-intensive and time-consuming process. Specifications are an integral part of the product and order defin ...

  4. Efficient Three-Dimensional CFD Model for Spray Combustion

    SBC: StreamWise, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A program is proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a general computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method for predicting turbulent, multi-phase mixing and reacting fluid/particle dynamics for three-dimensional spray combustion systems. The method allows coupled flow, chemistry and polydisperse aerosol behavior to be calculated efficiently in a Eulerian reference frame. Dispersed dropl ...

  5. Transportable Off-Road Axle Detector (TOAD)

    SBC: SPECTRA RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1997 Department of Transportation
  6. User-Based Method to Evaluate and Improve Maintenance Manuals

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1997 Department of Transportation

    SBC: Lineguard, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The infestation of crawling insect vermin can cause severe economic losses in citrus and other fruit and nut trees, nursery stock and ornamentals. The red imported fire ants (RIFA) in particular are responsible for damage and death of young citrus tree in the major U.S. citrus growing regions. RIFA freed on bark and cambium to obtain sap, girdling and often killing trees. Fire ants and other ants ...

  8. Efficacy Of Solar-powered Electrocutor/

    SBC: Olson Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Commercial livestock, as a group, are attacked by a complex of arthropod ectoparasites. The dairyindustry is no exception. Two species of filth fly pests that occur on this commodity group are houseflies and stable flies. Stable flies are fierce biters and have been shown to reduce milk production 40-60%. House flies are public health nuisances that can transmit a variety of diseases to humans ...

  9. Integrate And Develop The Natural Endod

    SBC: Prolong Water Service Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Experiments using a static bioassay system as a basis to develop a focal control method forDreissena illustrates the potential usefulness of the plant molluscicides, Lemmatoxins, fromPhytolacca dodecandra or Endod. Endod at a dose higher than 15mg/L is lethal to adult zebramussels, while a lower dose prevents their adhesion and aggregation. Since Endod plant havebeen successfully grown as monocu ...

  10. Biogas Fueled Solid Oxide Fuel Cell System


    Biogas is a readily available, renewable fuel source which can be produced in a farm-scale anaerobic digestion system. The biogas fuel provides the greatest utility and value when converted to electricity. The generally high concentration of hydrogen sulfide in biogas causes problems in most internal combustion (IC) engine-based systems (due to corrosion) and fuel cell-based systems (due to pois ...
